Luon S., 37, is an impoverished entrepreneur and has a business selling fish in her village. Every morning she receives fish from her husband who works as a fisherman and then transports it on her bicycle and sells it from house to house. She typically makes about US$ 2.5 each day.

Her husband, Penh Kim, sometimes catches more fish and he also sells it to fishmongers after he provides some to his wife. This couple has four children, two of whom are students; two others are employed as garment workers. Luon is requesting a loan of US$ 500 to purchase more fishing implements so her husband can catch more fish.
